An Emotional, Gritty Ride.
29 June 2012 | by (Seattle, United States) – See all my reviews

There are typically different people making different parts of a game, so if one part seems to outclass the rest, it should not seem to be a mystery. The writer of this title did a damn good job, creating an interesting tug-of-war that we rarely see in games. The narrative will have you questioning the choices you've made; wondering if you should have picked differently. Like I've heard elsewhere, Bioshock may have been the last game I've played that has these types of interesting thematic elements.

So the story side is great; graphically and gameplay-wise is it also great? Mostly.

While you won't be blown away by the uniqueness of the gameplay, you will find that the graphics are a beauty. There are times when I just pause to look at the scenery. The gameplay I'd say is comfortable. Much like playing BF3, Gears of War, or COD feels familiar every time you play it, in that "comfortable" way. Similarly Spec Ops is pleasant, you can dive right into the narrative without fumbling with controls for the first couple of hours.

The music and score throughout the game are pretty nice as well, however the sound effects feel lackluster. Bullets and weapons just don't have the audio impact that they should. Having been in the army, I can tell you that when you fire a weapon, it's a powerful thing, but in Spec Ops (as with many games), these sounds are glaring because of their lack of impact.

Overall though, this is a fun to play, harsh to consume game. And its great.

8/10
